Biggest Loser reveals trainers Brett and Cara as Dan and Don gain weight

The Biggest Loser finally revealed the identities of its mystery trainers last night, Cara and Brett, who were not a mystery at all, especially because Jillian Michaels said their names in an interview. Jillian is quitting the series after this season.

Meanwhile, the show didn’t quite live up to its name–or did, depending upon your definition of “loser”–as its competition element encouraged two contestants, as twin contestants Dan and Don gained nine pounds so Dan could go home.

Because I didn’t have 31 hours free last night, I didn’t watch, but Ree Hines recaps the episode and quotes Bob Harper, who said he “was so offended” by the weight gain, as if it hasn’t happened before. Thankfully, he’s not offended by shameless, relentless product placement.
